Lily Herbert Interview on TuneSick

After months of interviewing a range of different musicians, singers and DJ’s, it was time for Lily Herbert to change seats and be the one being interviewed. As an aspiring DJ herself, Lily has been working a lot over the past year, building her experience, connections and just generally slowly getting to grips with the whole music scene here in London. It has been a long and wild journey for Lily, to say the least.

The beginning of the journey saw a lot of practice, learning how to DJ and developing her mixing skills. The arrival of Covid and lockdown brought live events to a major halt and meant that opportunities for live performances were non-existent. However, this never stopped Lily – also known as DJ Pedz – from finding other ways to be creative and plan for when the lockdown finally ended. She contacted different venues, continued to work on her musical skills and even transformed her whole look, to get ready for when playing live would start up again.

Lily is back with a bang and look out for more to come from the artist, as she says in the video interview, there are gigs currently being planned as well as the possibility of producing some music as well. You can watch it here.

TuneSick – Getting To Know Aspiring Artists

Originally from Hawaii, Lily Fausett is currently studying Film at university in London, United Kingdom. Coming from a musical family, she has always been passionate about music since a child, having been surrounded by various instruments and constantly listening to songs being played in the background. A lot of her early childhood was spent listening to her father play, watching in awe. This is evident in her admiration of live music today and in her music recording that she is currently doing. 

For Lily, who is also of Nigerian descent, music is definitely a massive form of ”escapism”, and more or less her medication, as it has helped her ”mentally with all sorts of life challenges.” Losing family is hard for anyone to deal with and having something to keep you going is something extremely valuable to hold onto. It’s definitely her go to place.
